Is the Star Wars Saga Finally Coming to Netflix?
STAR WARS ON NETFLIX? THE EVIDENCE IS STACKING UP
It has been kind of an interesting month for Netflix, with the recent announcement that they wouldn’t be re-signing a deal with EPIX, an agreement that gave Netflix hundreds of top tier movie titles that subscribers could stream instantly. It’s always less fun hearing about movies being removed from the service.
But today a bit of evidence started piling up that Netflix is going to soon be adding the entire Star Wars back catalog for us all to stream, likely within the next month. With news like this, the news of other major removals quickly fades from memory.
There is some evidence of this potentially becoming a reality when searching deep under the top layer of Netflix’s library for Star Wars titles. There are existing pages within the streaming app (login required to see them) that lead us to believe we’re not that far off from Star Wars streaming on Netflix.
We have reached out to Netflix but have not heard back to confirm or deny these rumors.
This would certainly be a big win for the streaming service, especially with the newest film in the trilogy ‘The Force Awakens’ set to release December 2015, certainly making sense of this whole rumor. Why not market the entire film series prior to a big theatrical premiere? Not to mention Disney (the owner of Star Wars) and Netflix have a big agreement that’s about to kick into gear come 2016, so it wouldn’t surprise us to see this happen here soon.
